PRELIMINARY DESIGN AND CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT
Highway 138 Improvements from Highway 401 to Highway 417 (GWP 4015-08-00)
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has retained Stantec Consulting Ltd. to undertake a 
Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for operational and safety 
improvements to approximately 35 kilometres of Highway 138 between Highway 401 and Highway 417 in 
the City of Cornwall and the Townships of North Stormont and South Stormont.

The purpose of the study is to identify a Recommended Plan for improvements as part of the 
Ministry’s ongoing review of safety and operational needs for the provincial highway network. The 
improvements could include intersection improvements, turning lanes, passing lanes, drainage 
improvements, possible carpool parking, corridor access and entrance reviews, and snowdrift 
mitigation.

This notice is to announce the first Public Information Centre (PIC). The purpose of PIC 1 is to 
display and seek input on the preliminary improvement alternatives and existing conditions in the 
study area. The PIC will be a drop-in format and will be held on:

Wednesday, June 15, 2016
Cornwall Township Lions Club 17413 McPhail Road
4:00 PM to 8:00 PM

The project team is seeking information about local carpool / commuter behaviours as part of this 
PIC. We encourage you to visit the project website at www.highway138study.ca to complete the 
carpool / commuter survey to assist with this process.  Copies of the survey will also be available 
at the PIC.

THE PROCESS
This study is a “Group B” project under the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for Provincial 
Transportation Facilities (2000) and includes undertaking environmental and engineering field 
investigations and seeking input from the public, local municipalities, external 
ministries/agencies, and businesses. A second PIC is tentatively scheduled for the fall of 2016. 
Upon completion of preliminary design, a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR)  will be 
prepared and made available for public review. Notices will be published in local newspapers to 
advise the public of the TESR public review period.
